Hardwood External Doors
Hardwood External Doors are hard to beat on value for money. And the door to your home is as the eyes to your soul. As the first impression visitors see of your house, it needs to be safe and secure, able to withstand the weather, and provide protection for your family. More designs of hardwood front doors are available, and if you don't see exactly what you want, just call to discuss your requirements.
What makes our hardwood external doors stand out?
Our external hardwood doors have an inside core made up of solid hardwood blocks, jointed with mortise and tenon.
Then they are overlaid with A-grade hardwood veneers. Glazed hardwood doors allow extra light into darker hallways.
The benefits of an engineered external door
Compared to traditional single timber doors, engineered hardwood exterior doors have a number of superior benefits.
Traditional timber doors will often warp, move, expand and contract in our weather, and external doors are particularly susceptible to having one internal warm side and another external cold side.
The jointed single members will tend to pull away from each other, further trying to expand to fill the doorway as tightly as possible.
How are hardwood engineered doors superior to traditional single timber doors?
External hardwood engineered doors are made up of various hardwood blocks bound together under extreme heat. This ‘core’ is then covered in high grade hardwood veneer. In this way the components of the hardwood door hold together to form a solid body which resists movement, warping and expansion. Our external solid hardwood doors are therefore more resilient to harsh changes in weather conditions, so they’ll last a long time without becoming damaged.
How to install hardwood external doors
Always employ a qualified joiner to install your new hardwood front doors. We recommend four hinges for external doors and good solid locking mechanisms.
Always hang your door in a sound fitting, hardwood, external grade frame with draught excluders.
How to care for hardwood external doors
Your hardwood external door becomes immediately exposed to UV rays and the weather from the moment it is hung.
So, all hardwood exterior doors need good quality weather proof paints or treatments to preserve them through the extremes of the British climate.
